Brazil's Yuri Dzivielevski emerged from the Day 2 field in the WSOP Event #42 $400 PLOSSUS on Sunday after virtually bagging a healthy stack of 51,590,103 in chips into the nine-max final table taking place at GGPoker on Saturday, Aug. 1 at 7 p.m. GMT.

Dzivielevski is looking for his second taste at WSOP gold to add to the bracelet he won last year live in Las Vegas after shipping WSOP Event #51: $2,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better for $213,750.

He will be competing for even more this time around as Saturday's final table will award a huge first-place prize of $221,557 along with a WSOP Europe package valued at $15,000.

Dzivielevski is no stranger to online poker and is one of the most experienced pros in the game. He was ranked as the top online tournament player in the world at PocketFives several times in 2014 and 2015 and is impressively currently ranked in seventh place in the world.

Regardless of how it turns out, Dzivielevski will add to his nearly $7 million in tracked online scores.

Day 2 Recap

The PLOSSUS attracted a huge field of 4,356 entrants during its 15 opening flights. This was trimmed down to 642 players with 538 players guaranteed at least a min-cash of $938.

Finnish poker veteran Juha Helppi entered the day with the chip lead in hopes to put himself in a good position to win his third career bracelet.

Helppi won his first bracelet last year after shipping Event #72: $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship for $306,422.

He followed that up last week online by winning his second bracelet in Event #35: $5,000 PLO Championship for $290,286 payday.

Helppi made a deep run but his dreams were shattered after Michael "Phil Kessel" Cara ousted him in 65th place for $2,580.

Day 2 began at a fast and furious pace. The money bubble quickly broke during the third blind level of the day after Pablo Silva was eliminated in 549th place.

The pay jumps were quickly increasing throughout the day and in addition to Day 1 chip leader Helppi, all eyes were on GGPoker Ambassador Fedor Holz who was consistently piling on chips throughout the day.

Eventually, Holz's run for WSOP gold came to an end as he bowed out in 28th place for $3,649 in a three-way pot with Livshitz claiming the lion share in the side pot and splitting a smaller main pot with Simon Higgins.

Final Table Payouts

The final table kicks off on Saturday with the conclusion of Level 24 with blinds at 400,000/800,000.

All returning players are guaranteed at least a payout of $14,597 with everyone having their eyes on winning the coveted WSOP gold bracelet on the line along with a $221,557 top prize and a WSOP Europe package valued at $15,000.

"ThefastLayne" Eliminates "ninoboys80"

Jaxon • Niveau 24: 400,000-800,000, 0 ante

"ninoboys80" had the chip lead a few times today but was unable to parlay that into a final table appearance after just bowing out in 12th place for $10,321.

"ThefastLayne" three-bet jammed a bet from "ninoboy80" from 2.8 million to 8.5 million. "ninoboy80" had slightly less in their stack and made the call.

"ThefastLayne": {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}
"ninoboys80": {k-Hearts}{a-Spades}{4-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

It was looking good for "ninoboys80" to double after hitting two pair on the {k-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop.

The {8-Clubs} was a safe card on the turn but the {7-Diamonds} on the river was not as this gave "ThefastLayne" a set and the hand.

Corey Hochman

Corey "Kaia" Hochman open-jammed for 1,821,864 from the button and was called by Samuel "vivaegipto" Bernabeu in the small blind and "BaccaratKing" in the big blind.

Bernabeu bet 4,000,000 after the {j-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} came on the flop and "BaccaratKing" folded.

Samuel "vivaegipto" Bernabeu: {2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Corey "Kaia" Hochman: {q-Spades}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

Hochman was in big trouble with Bernabeu flopping a set. He was eliminated in 14th place after neither the {q-Hearts} on the turn nor the {k-Diamonds} on the river was able to save him.

Shortly after, "HoldemKing17" hit the rail in 13th place for $10,321 and the action is down to just two tables.

"ninoboys80" raised to 1.7 million from under the gun and Matt "DNSFD" Vengrin called from the big blind.

Vengrin check-shoved from 1.9 million to 7.5 million after the {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs} came on the flop. "ninoboys80" used some of their time bank before making the call.

Matt "DNSFD" Vengrin: {6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
"ninoboys80": {q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs}

Vengrin was behind but took a big lead in the hand after the {k-Spades} came on the turn. The {9-Clubs} completed the board on the river and Vengrin doubled up.
